A week or so ago, LiP writer, John Miele wrote an article about driving in the Philippines. He told how driving here is like swimming in a school of fish. Well, I have been driving here in the Philippines for nearly 11 years now, and to be honest, I have come to enjoy driving here! It takes some getting used to, but after you make the adjustment you will feel like it is second hand to you too, I am sure of that!
As John said, you have to follow the school of fish and just do what others do, that way you will roll with the flow, and will not have an accident here. In my 11 years of driving here, I have had one traffic accident, and that was a case where somebody hit me from behind, so my actions played no role in the accident.
Today, I thought I’d share a video with you of driving here in the Philippines.
